Description:

This is a small front-end to rdesktop that allows you to have multiple rdesktop sessions in a tabbed environment. It is designed to be quick, clean and easy. This is still in Alpha, so please forgive any bugs that may occur.

Please let me know how you like it.

Version 0.08

A whole lot of stuff...

* Added a Location Bar, now you can
optionally type a address to go to. If you type a host with a configured profile, ktabbedrdp will automatically use the profile.

*Added ability to type :console to establish a connection to the console of the machine specified.

*Profile editor!!! You can now create/edit/delete profiles in the profile editor. DO NOT edit a SeamlessRDP profile with the editor, its not yet supported.

*Added Options tag to configuration dialog, from there you can configure the program to bypass KDE's ctrl-alt-delete shortcut, and even autohide the hosts and location bar when connecting to a host, so you can really use as much space as possible.

*EXPERIMENTAL SeamlesRDP integration - If you have seamlessRDP installed on the remote host you can now add (only) an application under the remote applications on the start page. This application will be started up in its own window just like if you ran it from an conventional rdp session.

*Auto-hiding of statusbar after specified
interval.

*Various other cosmetic changes, especially the start page.

*Added sound port redirection option.

*Added history for the location bar, you can tab complete the host if it is in your history.

*Probably a lot of bugs too! (enjoy! ;)




Version 0.03

Fixed (i hope) sizing bug. This will ensure the rdp screen takes up as much space as possible on the screen.

Added limited profile support, you can use KWallets to store user/pass/domain info.

Some documentation done.


Version 0.02a

Changed configuration page. Users can
now edit hosts in a spreadsheet-like manner.

Added DisplayName configuration variable. You can now customize what is displayed in the host list. (its good for machines you connect to via ip)

**EXPERIMENTAL** (and the cause for the kde 3.5 min req jump and my gray hairs)

Added the ability to temporarily remap kde's ctrl+alt+delete (log out) shortcut to ctrl+alt+end while ktabbedrdp is running. The original keyshort will be restored when ktabbedrdp is closed. This is to fix a weird issue where the ctrl+alt+delete sequence does not get handled by rdesktop when it is embedded in a window. Key mappings take effect the moment you click on the option.



Version 0.01a

Fixed stupid icon issue
Fixed compile files so target wont have to be i686. You only need to update if you could not compile before or want an icon.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

execute ktabbedkrdpinstaller.sh and it will automatically guide you through the rest of the install process.

After install look for a program called krdp in your utilities menu. I am sorry i am trying to change the name of the project files, takes some time to do.

UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS:

remove previous krdp.kdevelop directory and run installer

I don't know why and were is a bug, but rdesktop don't fill resized window of Krdp (I like to work in 1024x768 resolution).
As I see in rdesktop 1.5.0 it uses standard function XReparentWindow. Maybe you give not right handler to rdesktop?

this is like the new krdc, right? Maybe you can give Urs Wolfer a hand ;-)

(see part about KRDC on the beta 1 announcement: http://www.kde.org/announcements/announce-4.0-beta1.php )

Nope, I didn't even know that krdc is getting a makeover. I just needed a interface quickly, so I put my mind to it and wrote this. If you look through the source, you will see a connectionProfiles.ui file which is a connection profile wizard... I am going to add those in the next "milestone" release.

Oh and next milestone, seamlessrdp support :)

You know I am an idiot... I will fix the build system so it will by default use i386 build type... Give me 24 hours and Ill have it fixed.
